    Almost all resilience efforts are directed toward individuals. However, it is equally, if not more important, to address systemic or institutional causes.

    Join us at ELC 2020 for our Pre-Con, Fighting Burnout: It’s Not All Up to You, on Thursday, October, 15, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. as we address these topics. Attendees will discover the causes and consequences of burnout and compassion fatigue at the individual level and the organizational level.
